    I have a 2.33 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 15" Mac Book Pro. I am running 10.6. Allegedly, I have 120GB of storage, but I can only seem to clean it up down to around 50GB. The math on my music, movies, apps, pics, and docs doesn't add up. Is there anything "hidden" that could be consuming my storage?

    Run jdiskreport.

    Scanning / will show you everything, but it takes a long time. Scanning /Users/yourame will show just your stuff, and it is a lot faster. There is lots of system stuff that isn't just your music, movies, and pictures. There are some tools you can run to clean up some of that, or you can upgrade to Snow Leopard, which will free up some space (or do both).

    I like Disk Inventory X. That really helped me clean up my hard drive.
